Ленинград (Leningrad) is a Russian ska band famous for intensive use of obscene language in lyrics. The band's frontman is Сергей Шнуров (Sergey Shnurov). In 2005, their music was featured in the motion picture "Everything Is Illuminated" starring Elijah Wood.

The band, and especially its leader, Shnurov, has long been famous for its catchy beats and irrepressably bad language, somehow managing to be one of the top bands in Russia despite almost never being clean enough to earn radio play and despite its live concerts banned in Moscow.
